View Artist Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work examines the idea of my personal identities from the nostalgic memories of my past and my new experience of relationships with people in an unfamiliar environment through autobiographical reinterpreted notions and re-imagined objects. I incorporate watercolors, acrylic, collage with Asian paper and other media to portray the fragility, sensitivity, and complexity of memories, emotions, and thoughts expressed in my works. Collectively, the paintings are interconnected mindscapes that challenge the idea of personal identity and emotion. The works are each describing different boundaries of safe and unsafe social environments and various senses of vulnerability. Each work intends to transform the space and objects from familiar to unfamiliar and lets the viewers see the different perspective.
